Where is Pooled Energy Available?
Sydney-based energy provider Pooled Energy offers a unique combination of electricity and pool automation services to households in the Ausgrid and Endeavour networks of New South Wales. By automating your pool, the company aims to reduce energy consumption and help you save on chemical and maintenance costs.
When you sign up and pay an establishment fee, the company will install new automation equipment and sensors that help monitor water quality and energy consumption. The system connects directly to the Internet to send you real-time alerts and optimise your pool based on the current weather. By closely monitoring the water, the retailer can also help you reduce the number of chemicals in the pool as you'll only have to add what the pool actually needs.
New customers must sign up for both electricity and pool services. However, eligible existing customers can cancel their pool services and keep only their electricity with the company.

If applicable, demand charges are billed monthly based on your highest demand for electricity in kilowatts (kWh) typically during a 30 or 60 minute period of the preceding month. Whether you receive a demand charge will depend on the electricity network region, your retailer and your electricity usage during peak demand times. The pricing in our tables do not currently account for demand charges. For more information about demand charges, please speak to your electricity retailer.

Does Pooled offer solar?
Yes, Pooled Energy offers solar feed-in tariffs for customers with solar panels. However, the company doesn't install solar panels.
With a solar optimisation service or Intelligent Pool Controller (IPC), the provider can save you money by using solar to run your pool only on sunny days. On rainy days, the pool will be run off-peak, and on days with mixed weather, the energy source will be determined by the IPC statistically. The IPC uses real-time weather data from the Bureau of Meteorology to stay up to date.
Important notes: The estimated price we show by default is based on a single rate tariff. On your bill this might be known as a 'peak tariff', 'peak only' or an 'anytime tariff'. There are other tariff types available to customers and you may need to contact your provider if you are on these tariffs:
Single rate with a controlled load
